leader but brazil is one of the most important emerging economies for the whole global economy it's one of as we call them the bricks the emerging economies that has the chance to structure how the economy is going to look going forward. when you think about the countries but obviously the united states when you think about the countries along the pacific rim of latin america they make connect more to the economy of asia. i was always struck when i would go to something called the summit of the americas which is about latin america and the caribbean and we would have these discussions and travis would take off and everybody would sort of what ever. but then almost a week or two weeks later we would go to the asia pacific economic council. there it is the pacific rim countries of chellie and the pacific rim all the way to canada and all the way out through japan and china and korea and the conversation was completely different. was about global trade and freeing trade. and i actually always thought that in that sense the country had more in common with their asian counterparts than their
the broader economy and the republicans acknowledge that but are not ready to go back to the negotiating table right now. >> ken, i guess the other point here is that, you know, if the sequester happens and, for example, in "the washington times" today, they talked about the ripple effect on defense contractors and the thousands of jobs that they are preparing to have layoffs for because of the threat of sequester. i mean, who gets the blame if the economy starts to tank? >> right. well, congress gets the blame more generally and that is what i think is sort of lost here in the jockeying, the positioning and pointing fingers at both sides. we already see historic negative approval ratings for congress. it's only going to get down to both parties detriment. however, i do think the president, by virtue of having this bully pulpit we will see him exercise later this morning and presumely for the next several days, does have a little bit of the upper hand here. i'm not sure if it's quite so much that he can convince republicans to accept additional tax increases as perry suggested is very unlikely
a question on everyone's mind -- how do we get the economy to grow from here? no one knows better than the leaders of corporate america. joining on set this morning, 32 adviser ceo robert wolfe. we'll have hanes celestial ceo irwin simon. and the kraft group president, jonathan kraft. >>> on the lighter side of things, spring is around the corner. that must meantime for baseball. white sox vice president ken williams will join us to talk business on and off the diamond coming up at 8:40 eastern time. >>> an interesting mix of topics in rotation today. first, let's get over to andrew with the top headlines. >> thanks. >>> boeing reportedly found a way to fix battery problems with its grounded 787. here's what's happening. involves increasing the space between cells in the battery. a source tells reuters the gaps between the cells were why there was overheating. we'll talk about that in a bit. >>> in other news on boeing, the company's engineers are split on a contract. the largest professional group approved the planemaker's latest contract offer. but members of a smaller technical unio

of the rich. the problem is, whenever he tries to squeeze more money out of the economy, he is slowing it down. we slowed down in the fourth quarter, and it's not because government spending is going down. government spending is still going at pace and we have plenty of government spending and in fact spent more the fourth quarter last year than the third quarter and spent more than the previous year and never had a real cut in spending in recent history. so i think he's just flat-out wrong. >> chris: but, as a matter -- whether right or wrong, and, you know, it doesn't have anything to do with -- as a matter of practical politics isn't the president putting the republican party in the same spot he successfully put you in during the campaign, he's defending the middle class and you guys are protecting tax breaks for the wealthy? >> right and that is empty and false rhetoric and is our job to explain to the american people, big government doesn't help the poor. big government creates massive debt which causes your prices to rise. your gas price going up, if you make $20,000 a year, and have two
immediately afterwards. -- planned to run it immediately afterwards. this assumption was that the economy would continue to improve or would improve. i think running and losing in 2008 was liberating for him. he found that he could be happy. we kept talking. he wanted to talk about it. we had a busy 2010 client schedule. he finally said, on election day 2010, if you cannot do anything for your client, why don't we meet? ok. we can do that. my partner and i met him. we met him in boston. at his condo. that was when i got a sense that he was intending to run. >> he was serious? and he made the decision? >> yeah. >> covering the white house, he always viewed mitt romney is the face of the republican party. is that unfair? >> no. after the 2008 election, we were thinking about the future. he asked me who i thought the nominee would be in 20 20. i said, mitt romney. i knew we were heading into an economic maelstrom. i spoke earlier to a group about this opposites theory of presidential races. romney and the business background seem like the kind of person who could emerge from that. on electio

with. >> he's not alone. >> our economy is adding jobs but too many people still can't find full-time employment. >> when president obama took office, 134 million americans were working in nonfarm jobs. today, after massive losses and a slow recovery, we're only 1.2 million jobs better off. and many pay less than those that were lost. recent study by the center for college affordability found almost half of college graduates are now in jobs that do not require four-year degrees. things like janitorial services, taxi driving and retail sales. professor richard vetter at ohio university helped author that study. >> let's say each one of them were making $20,000 a year more in income, which is quite plausible. we are talking about $400 billion a year in lost wages. >>> numbers like that made some economic analysts argue that underemployment may be every bit as damaging to the economy as unemployment. and kellock irvin is caught in the middle of it all. for now he takes freelance jobs as a photographer and part-time work with moving companies. but -- >> that can only support me so lo
are strong as a nation, and our economy is strong enough to recover from this piece by piece. what about that? >> well, this is where i would be critical of the president, ed. i think we would have faster economic recovery if we weren't laying off police officers and firefighters and school teachers all over the country. if you look at the reagan era, one of the things reagan did was a huge ramp-up when the economy was in trouble of government employees. but without question, the deficit is coming down to where it should be. which is slightly above spending or a balanced budget. it's going in that direction. the president has had the smallest growth in discretionary spending in numerous presidents as opposed to the big spender george w. bush who came ahead of him. >> dave, stay with us. i want to bring in steve benen, msnbc contributor. good to have you with us tonight. why are mainstream journalists repeating this lie about president obama not having a plan to replace sequester? >> well, i can only speculate about what brooks and others are thinking. but i would think in all likelihood, ther

, patriotic smugglers during the colonial war during this time in this country there are existing economies between good and bad. it was alluded to a moment ago by pat in her comments a moment ago. it feigns dynamism. it reminds you that what is forgotten now may not always be so. the impermanence of what is forgotten. it is an antidote to naturalizing things. how things are, how they will be, and how they should be. how the book challenges us, well, we have many episodes of demonization and also what we might call dehumanization or purification. these are very telling because it sheds a light on who gets to define what is permitted and what is not. based on the power to define what is legal and what is not. in the book it talks about before the revolution and in the late 19th and early 20th century, we saw the purity crusader, his name was anthony. he was responsible for being against illicit images and condoms being illegal. this is all forms of contraception including commons are legal. including the issuance of condoms for u.s. soldiers and etc. i will deconstruct the incompletion voyeu
are they saying and what are they saying about the economy? >> looking backward they're saying walmart had a very good christmas. they earned more than expected. they came in light on sales. however, going forward, that's really a question. walmart is considered a bellwether for our economy and what they told us this morning is that the payroll tax cut is impacting consumers. the hike that we saw at the beginning of the year, the 2% hike which takes about $20 out of people's weekly paycheck is hitting the consumer and gasoline prices are up 50 cents in the last month and there's a tell prey knock on the consumer right now because refunds have been delayed. the tax code had to be overhauled as a result of the many of the reforms of last year and they're saying their consumer has been hit by delays in the refund checks, about $20 billion in refund checks didn't go out on time. >> all right. new information. re rebec rebecca, thank you. >>> the obama administration plans fines, penalties, and trade sanctions against any government that sponsors hacking. bob orr is in washington. bob, good morning. >
economy. that's a really, really tiny slice of the thanksgiving pie, people. there is no need to cut from the vulnerable when it should be easy to cut the amount of money we're talking about from other places. so why is all we hear, the republicans won't do this, the democrats won't do that? danielle altman is an economics professor at ncu. daniel, one thing to acknowledge here, finding $85 billion should be no problem. $85 billion is a really small chunk of the change we actually need to find. so even if you cut from the right places, if you cut the right amount, it would hurt people, and i think we have to be honest about that, but the cuts we're talking about right now impact a lot of people, but brutal and dangerous for the economy? >> well, the thick is this. that it's $85 billion until the end of this year, but then we have these cuts maintained, and enlarged in some cases, going forward over the next seven years. so we've got almost $1 trillion in cuts. so if the sequester goes forward -- >> but over that ten-year period, you have to multiply that times ten too. >> but expectations
that the overall impact of the economy will be to slow down the recovery. >> what do we know about planned talks next week? >> not much. as you just were saying there's not been much in the way of talks so far and most of what the president has planned is what the republicans have been decrying as more of a campaign strategy than anything across the country and taking his case to the people about the potential effects of this sequester. he did make those calls to boehner and mcconnell yesterday. it was seen as prefunctory and no real negotiations and i think part of the reason why the discussion is turning in to a blame game is that both sides have basically accepted that this is going to happen and now all that remains is trying to blame each other for it when it comes. >> zachary, you know wall street and all sides of this. we have not seen a great reaction of wall street. that was the looming cloud with the fiscal cliff. what would wall street do and jolt me believes of congress. does that help or hurt the president as he tries to explain to people, at least what he feels will happen and not
in this town is a mind game. this is a diversion to keep you off the thought of this poor economy which generates crime. this is about crime and is trying to divert your attention away from it because they cannot create jobs. i have two quotes from people who know what they're talking about. bruce weinberg, ohio state university -- but officials can pass tougher citizen laws and take other steps to reduce crime but there are limits to how much these can do. we found that a badly premarket has a profound impact on the crime rates -- that a bad labor market has a profound impact on the crime rates. this causes more unemployment a spiral situation from which it is difficult to recover. what we need to do is create jobs, businesses. small businesses create less crime. though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i fear no evil because i am the meanest and fiercest person walking into the valley.[laughter] >> thank you. and a reminder of the los angeles riot.i was actually there during that time as well. you are absolutely right. that is what we saw. you are right, that most of t
to the economy, but people start hearing, layoffs will, uh, people will see less money in their medicare payments to doctors. as these real-world costs hit, it will be interesting, and likely what drives the eventual deal will be with the political pressure lands on. host: can you walk us through the next six or seven days? as you indicated, the president traveling to norfolk, virginia, an area have the with pentagon contracts and military construction and the navy shipyards. what are you looking for? guest: the most interesting things will be the votes in the house and senate. if democrats are able to win over a number of republicans to get a compromise through, that would really upset the equation. it would be very much unexpected. that is maybe our one chance to avert the sequester. more likely, it will be a vote were democrats -- where democrats put forward a plan but fails. then you'll see a lot of finger- pointing from both sides, with republican saying, democrats could not pass of planned. the democrats will say, republicans are the ones who blocked our compromise to be in the senate. -- p
